Gold Club: Nothing is ever simple with Q. Guyton. If his "Henny & Grand Marnier" was just a prelude then "Beamer Life", his latest track from his Reduction tape is just another visual appetizer for us to dine on.

Audio: @TheRealBanamak - "Beyond The Surface"

Audio: Banamak - "Beyond The Surface"

C.B.: Beyond The Surface is Banamak’s first 6 track EP. It is a self-produced project that examines a search for identity that most people go through. Banamak shares his journey through his music, exposing his own vulnerabilities and examining his own personal insecurities while attempting to provide relevant insight and an optimistic attitude. He lyrics often reflect on how the choices we make now will affect our future. The title of the EP was chosen because it represents the self-reflection Banamak faced while writing the songs for the project. Beyond The Surface features a song with Banamak's long-time collaborator, Scruppy and also features beautiful vocals from Jadyn Dominique Estrada on the track "The Cycle."

Audio: Stream Hilltop Hoods 'Walking Under Stars' & Tour Dates

Matt: The Hilltop Hoods released their brand new album Walking Under Stars through Golden Era Records/Fontana on 8-12-2014. The album is the highly anticipated follow up to 2012’s double platinum ARIA award winning album Drinking from the Sun.

The band has managed to once again push the envelope for Australian hip hop with the incendiary Walking Under Stars, a release that promises to be unlike anything fans have heard before. "Walking Under Stars is like a progressive and soulful big brother to Drinking From the Sun” says MC Pressure and MC Suffa states "With Walking Under Stars we took our time and worked as hard as we could to craft an album that we could be truly proud of.”

Walking Under Stars boasts twelve-tracks and features guest appearances from the legendary Brother Ali, New Zealand soul songstress Aaradhna, UK’s rising soul star Maverick Sabre, ARIA Award winning soul rocker Dan Sultan and fellow Best Urban ARIA winner Drapht.

In support of this highly anticipated release and with the help of Red Bull, Hilltop Hoods are embarking upon their most extensive tour of the US & Canada to date to support the release of their brand new album Walking Under Stars, 2014 will undoubtedly be another year full of milestones for Australia’s greatest hip hop act Hilltop Hoods.
